Serve as a Volunteer Essay Reader

Are you looking to start 2020 off with a little volunteer work you can do right from your couch? The Eagan Foundation is still looking for a few more volunteers to read and score essays submitted in its 2020 Scholarship Application Process.

Why: Give back to your community with this engaging and rewarding volunteer opportunity!

What: Read and score 20 – 40 scholarship essays submitted by Eagan-area high school seniors through the Eagan Foundation Scholarship process. The essays are “scrubbed” to screen names and identifying information. The task should take about 5-7 hours.

When: The essays will need to be read and scored between February 17th and March 1st.

How: Click here to sign up!

  • You will receive access to a google drive folder that contains instructions, sample scores, your assigned essays, a grid to record your scores in.
  • If you would like to attend an in-person training, you can! We have sessions on February 11h and February 12th (in signup link above). If those don’t work, we can schedule a different time or a phone call to answer questions if you can’t join in person.

Where: From your favorite recliner, couch, kitchen table, etc. You will need internet access to retrieve the files from a google drive folder. If you would like to attend an orientation/training – it will be at Art Works in Eagan.

Who: Most everyone is eligible to read, excluding parents that have a current high school senior.
